I was extremely disappointed in the entire evening. The entree’s (crab cakes) included Ild Bay seasoning and both orders were extremely salty. We had to send them back. The lamb was charred and I just ate poor quality food with no further complaints.
The birthday celebration was magnificent filled with love and family. This and the ambiance saved the evening. I will not dine there again nor will I recommend.

I throughly did not enjoy myself and neither did my wife. The service was horrible. The waiter was extremely forgetful. Each plate we received was cold. The lamb I ordered was dry.

The restaurant was basically empty and the wait time on food and drinks was so long.

I literally wasted $300 on my wife’s birthday dinner. Extremely unhappy. I will never come back.

The view is a must! The food was sub par, the sea bass was over cooked as was the lamb. Ann, our server was truly the only reason we would visit again. She made the visit unique and was so helpful and welcoming. Overall, they tried to make up for the terrible food but weren't successful with the execution of the meals at all...

The view is great. The food is okay. Way too expensive. The service was not what I expected, I thought it was supposed to be an experience but turns out you’re just paying for the view. They knew that it was my husbands birthday but nothing really happened. I wanted to make it special.

Husband and I are not difficult to handle and we pay for price without causing trouble. Just very disappointed that I spent $200 & expect the service to be more attentive.

Significantly over priced.. I think since they are now only open on Friday and Saturday they have tripled their prices. Food is OK definitely not worth the money. Restaurant was empty we ask for a table next to the window and didn’t get it. Not a great experience

Very great experience. I hadn’t been to the Sun Dial in about 8 years prior to this most recent visit. The food was good, service was good, and our food/drinks came out very quick. Unfortunately it no longer rotates, but the views are still absolutely breathtaking. It would just be nicer to view the skyline at all angles. The only issue I had was that the party at the table next to ours kept getting up and taking pictures. Due to the pandemic it’s important that everyone keep their distance. There are many areas available in the restaurant for you to get up and take pictures. Why huddle near someone else’s space? The restaurant staff should strictly enforce social distancing.

The views of the Atlanta skyline are amazing, the service is top notch, and the restaurant is beautiful, if a bit dated. The restaurant is not currently rotating, which was disappointing, but we were warned of that beforehand, so it wasn't a surprise. The food was very good. Not necessarily worth the price of admission, but still a good meal. We felt like were paying more for the location than for the quality of the meal.

Overall, we had a great time, and the restaurant did everything they could to follow Covid guidelines and take what precautions they could.

Sundial is one of my favorite places because of the elegance and the great View. It's unfortunate that they had to stop the rotation feature, understandably, yet it is missed. Of course tables were socially distant. Prefix Christmas dinner price was High I thought, at $ 105 plus 18% gratuity), but it was a pamdemic Splurge for the holiday and a treat for our 2 teenagers. After explaining to them the reason for and importance of a palate cleanser (which was a sorbet) it never arrived. I guess the waiter was hoping I would not notice. When I mentioned it he admitted he forgot it but wasn't quick to get it / make up for it. At this price, we wanted everything we paid for. He eventually comped my husband and I iced teas as an I'm sorry. Okay. I asked for a to-go cup for my delicious vanilla bean sweet tea , and he said all he had was kids sippy cups and suggested I take the drink out as is, in the tall, Sundial glass tumbler ( uncovered) . Huh? I'm thinking, this is not Bourbon Street. A table right next to the glass windows would have been roomier and nicer. We would have asked for a switch but we actually didn't see one available. Fun people-watching inside and downstairs while waiting for the Sky elevator oh, and of course for the valet to return our car (kind I'll forever), as always. But, you can't beat that outside elevator ride, pretty scary – fantastic! We will continue to patronize Sundial for special occasions.

My server Yves was great. The view is worth it. I know why the rotation feature has ceased, but the rotation feature would make it a more worthy experience. The restrooms should have constant attention. I went to use the restroom and couldn't because it needed cleaning. I use to have lunch here quite often years ago and don't remember kids. Adult only hours would be nice, but the Sun Dail is worth the experience at least once in a person's life.

The Sun dial in Atlanta has been one of the greatest dinners I've had. The food was fantastic, and our drinks were strong. The view of Atlanta from the sundial is quite amazing, This restaurant has been one that I have been wanting to visit for a while and after experiencing it I'm glad I did. As for the price of food, it was quite expensive but worth the experience. The service wasn't as expected but they kept our waters full and brought out our meals at the appropriate times. Although waiting for the waiter to take our order did take quite a bit of time.
